This is the first book with a comprehensive analysis of SADCC as a new regional institution of inter-state economic cooperation, beginning with the Pan-African Movement for East and Central Africa established in 1958 and emphasizing the role of South Africa and external powers in the economies of Southern Africa states. The book also shows how the dependence of SADCC states can be explained within the context of center-periphery.
